I know what it’s like…

I know how hard a burden
is to carry on your own,
to feel so broken,
and all alone.
I know what it is like
to have nobody there,
when everything in life
is full of despair.

I know what it is like
for a moment to change you.
When nothing will ever be
like it used to.

I know what it is
to have pain so deep,
that you spend countless nights
crying yourself to sleep.

I know what it is like,
to feel like all hope is lost,
that you want the pain gone
at any cost.

I know what it is like
to smile and pretend,
to act like it’s okay;
when you really want life to end.

I know what it is like
for a memory to leave a palpable mark,
how it feels to be
unsafe in the dark.
I know what it’s like
for nightmares to creep,
to be scared to fall asleep.

I know what it is like
when life and people won’t stop hurting you.
I know what it is like
to feel like you deserve
what you’re going through.

I know how hard life
can be to overcome.
I know where
depression comes from.

I know how hard it is to find,
acceptance with oneself
and peace of mind.

I know what it’s like
to fight through each day.
What it’s like to lie and
say everything’s okay.

I have spent my entire life fighting
and I now share it,
through my writing.

In my writing I’m direct and open.
It’s to help others
who feel lost and broken.

I know what it’s like
to consider and try suicide.
So to help others in the dark,
I share my blog at seeing the outside.

Because I know what it’s like,
to hate this world and life.
